St Joseph — our friend

St Joseph has been a contributor to this Blog for most of its life. She has contributed frequently and vigorously – she likes nothing better than a good argument. And throughout she has been an inspiring example of a Catholic life.

Now she has an advanced cancer, and her prospects are not good. This Friday she is going on a brief trip to Lourdes. I have promised her prayers and good wishes from all those who read this Blog – including those who are only passing guests.

    I’m sure we’ll all join in with that.

    I don’t know you all that well St Joseph, but I will say a prayer for you and keep you in my prayers when I remember. God Bless.

    St Joseph
    You are daily in our prayers, dear sister! C’s priest is in Lourdes at the moment – a Fr, Stuart Chalmers from Aberdeen. I sent him something by email that struck a chord with him and he was grateful. It is waiting for you on your computer too when you get back. It is called `He raised me up’. May the Holy Mother Mary answer your prayers.
    God bless

    St.Joseph you are in all of our prayers and we all wish you a speedy and full recovery.

  5. John Nolan says:

    St. Joseph – an old-school Catholic who like most of her ilk is far more tolerant and ecumenically-minded than her ‘liberal’ critics.

    I’m sure St. Joseph will have the grace to bear whatever God has in store for her. Lourdes is a wonderful place of consolation, mat she find peace there.

  7. Singalong says:

    Yes, continuing prayers, and I hope that she is able to take part especially in the torchlight procession, on foot or with wheels, and join in singing the Ave to Our Lady.

    St. Joseph, I feel I know you quite well (for a time we seemed to be the only two females contributing to secondsightblog). I can assure you of my prayers. With your permission, I’ll add your name (I do know your real name!) to the list of “those to be prayed for” at Sunday Mass. I’m going to Lourdes myself, in October, as a “helper” with a Jumbulance.
    I hope it brings you peace and comfort.
